I've had ME for around ten years. ME has hindered my life in many ways. When i started my job as a lifeguard at Horizon Waterloovile i joined this caring team that have helped me over the years, even when they may not understand the illness as so little is truly known. Before I developed ME I was a competitive swimmer so a swim challenge fit with me well. We aim to swim 250 miles as roughly 250,000 people suffer with ME in the UK alone. Any help you can give me give ME suffers the change at a life without pain. The swim will be taking place at Horizon waterloovilre on Sunday 21st October 2018.
